That will flash once when the included file first opens. I could swear that typesetting would open the root source file but now I don't see that happening.

Ooops... if I change something in an included file then typeset the root file does open and will stay open. I will use Cmd-1 in the preview to shift to the root file and then can use Cmd-F2 to shift between source files (Shift-Cmd-F2 shifts the other way).
